You know that Physics can be pretty complex with Math. Picturing a fellow doing it all by hand is quite hard. SO I imagine they've got some Physics programs where a scientest can enter their infor ,the chip does funny tricks and they come out with results. They computer could probrably do almost the same thing as a scientiific calculator but it shoudl be able to handle more tricks or functions. Graphs and illustrations out to be as well. BTW I'm picturing a physicist with a labcoast on doing experiments and going over to his/her computer and entering the results.DOes a physicist really need to have a labcoat on?
